Well, you could find a younger guy who went through a 2004 Britney Spears-style wedding, but that would just be weird.
There’s also the possibility of meeting a guy who got married as a child (18-25), but got divorced by 30.
Can you imagine what a quiet apartment with no roommates sounds like? Aside from the whole divorce thing, he’s likely to have his life together (and if he doesn’t, run).
He probably has a good job, since odds are, he’s been there a while. Your life may be in a constant state of crazy and your mind may usually run in 12 different directions, but his stability is refreshing and helps to keep you balanced amidst the chaos of your world.
When the guy you’re dating has other responsibilities, it allows for the perfect balance to grow a healthy relationship.
Because he has other obligations, he puts more emphasis on the time you do spend together.
Maybe in more ways than one, but he definitely has real-world experience and the benefit of the 20/20 hindsight vision you won’t have for years.
He’s already been where you are and likely has valuable insight into whatever current life crisis you might be experiencing.
With the higher likelihood that he has children to support and spend time with or a time-consuming job, his other obligations give you time for yourself.
The biggest mistake in new relationships is immediately going from first date to inseparable and dedicating all of your time and energy to this single person.
